The curtain may have closed early on the 2019-2020 school year but the Lehigh Valley's high school musicals are still being celebrated through the Freddy Awards.

While no one will be taking the stage Thursday night at the State Theatre in Easton, theatre president and CEO Shelley Brown said many hours of work went into making the show a night to remember.

Only six of the 29 schools that participate in the Freddy's got a chance to perform their musicals before the school year was cut short.

Brown said because of this, the Freddy's won't be handing out their annual "best in show" awards. But some accolades, including the recipient of a full-ride scholarship, will be announced on social media at the end of the show.

Brown said this year's show, while different, was created with a lot of input from this year's senior class.

And if you're a Freddy's alum, tune in. "All the people that have been in the opening number for the last 17 years of the Freddy awards, you need to be watching tonight {Thursday]. You're going to see yourselves and see the progression throughout the year," Brown said.
